For the week ended Saturday, July 15th, 7 sales were archived to the Rare Book Hub Transaction Database; one denominated in euros, 1 in British pounds, and 5 in US dollars.  Turnover was a slim $952,230, not because there wasn’t activity but because we, at Rare Book Hub, are working shorter summer hours.  For this report 1,700 lots were offered and 1,535 sold for a 90% success rate.  We’ll be back to full schedule this week.
